How Can Poor Indoor Air Quality Affect You?

poor indoor air quality

You might clean thoroughly to get your home looking great, but that doesn't mean you should clean up only the things you can see. After all, though you can't see your home's air, it's imperative that you keep it as clean as your carpets, windows, kitchen, and all else.

After all, while dirty indoor air might not be an eyesore like a dirty kitchen can be, it can lead to a host of negative issues for you. You might not be compelled to clean up something else that you can't even see, but you might be compelled to get your home's indoor air cleaned up after knowing some of the negative effects that dirty air can have.

You'll Experience Respiratory Issues

All the dirty particulates that build up in your home's air supply can wreak havoc on your sinuses. If you remain exposed to dirty indoor air for very long, you could develop a number of respiratory issues:

  • Coughs
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Congestion
  • Headaches

Your Allergies Will Flare Up

Not all issues that dirty indoor air can lead to are quite as dangerous as the one listed above, but they can certainly be frustrating in their own right. Case-in-point: Your allergies can flare up. If you aren't particular to . . .

  • Itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sniffling
  • Sneezing nonstop

. . . then you need to keep your home's indoor air clean.

Your Home Will Smell Musty and Gross

You don't clean just to get your home looking good. With all the sprays and floor cleaning products and candles that go into beautifying your home, you also want the place to smell good. But you know what doesn't smell good?

  • Animal fur and dander
  • Pollen
  • Mold spores
  • Lingering food odors

And all of those will build up in your home's air supply over time. Want your home to smell great? Then get that air cleaned up!
